999: ON THE FRONTLINE
999: On the Front Line follows the paramedics of the West Midlands Ambulance Service as they respond to medical emergencies happening simultaneously across the region.
Caring for a population of over 5.5 million people spread over 5 thousand square miles, they are the country’s fastest responding ambulance service.
Embedded with 9 different ambulance crews spread across three emergency hubs we capture simultaneously every minute of their 12 hour shifts to provide a unique snapshot of life on the front line. Told with a mix of high energy actuality shot on fixed rig, bodycam, roving film crews, and retrospective master interviews, each episode shows the variety of cases the service attends often within the same hour.
During one of the worst winters we have seen, this series we follow the crews as they battle through the snow and react to the highest amount of calls the service has ever dealt with.
